Aims and scope

Acta Geochimica serves as the international forum for essential research on geochemistry, the science that uses the tools and principles of chemistry to explain the mechanisms behind major geological systems such as the Earth‘s crust, its oceans and the entire Solar System, as well as a number of processes including mantle convection, the formation of planets and the origins of granite and basalt. The journal focuses on, but is not limited to the following aspects:

• Cosmochemistry

• Mantle Geochemistry

• Ore-deposit Geochemistry

• Organic Geochemistry

• Environmental Geochemistry

• Computational Geochemistry

• Isotope Geochemistry

• NanoGeochemistry

All research articles published in this journal have undergone rigorous peer review. In addition to original research articles, Acta Geochimica publishes reviews and short communications, aiming to rapidly disseminate the research results of timely interest, and comprehensive reviews of emerging topics in all the areas of geochemistry.
